FLORENCE, Ala. - The University of North Alabama Department of Communication's concentration in film and digital media production is in only its fifth year of existence, but its recent high rankings prove it to be off to a phenomenal start. In an international survey by Reelshow International online magazine released earlier this week, UNA is ranked No. 1 of the list of Top Ten Film Schools of 2012.

Reelshow magazine is an online common ground for film enthusiasts that promotes film submissions from undergraduate and graduate film students. This year's survey is the fifth released by Reelshow, but the first to recognize UNA.

"We're just concentrating on doing good work," said Jason Flynn, an assistant professor at UNA. "We're interested in making a good program for our students and finding good students to be a part of our program."

Flynn was selected by Reelshow in 2011 as Film Mentor of the Year.
